Here's the difference
THE PRESS WANTS TO SHOW BODIES from Katrina. It didn't want to show bodies, or jumpers, on 9/11, for fear that doing so would inflame the public.Well, here's one difference: in the aftermath of Katrina, inflaming the public might lead to widespread dissatisfaction, deserved or not, with the response of the federal, state, and local governments to the disaster.
I can only conclude that this time around, the press thinks it's a good thing to inflame the public. What could the difference be?
In the aftermath of 9/11, inflaming the public might have led to knuckle-dragging good ol' boys bashing in the heads of random Muslims, or anybody suitably dark-skinned.
